We're hoping to better understand reading difficulties and how they manifest by investigating brain development, from infancy through reading development in childhood, in families with and without a family history of dyslexia.

We also want to find out why some children develop dyslexia and whether we can detect any early signs before the children begin kindergarten.

Who can participate?
Healthy, full-term infants (2-12 months) with exposure to English since birth, no known medical conditions, and whose mothers have had a non- complicated pregnancy.

Where is the study being conducted?
At Boston Children's Hospital in Waltham and Boston.

What do I have to do if I'm in the study?
This study involves one session at 2-12 months of age, with additional follow-up visits when your child is a toddler (13-20 months) and before he/she begins Kindergarten.

These visits would consist of cognitive tests and one sedation-free MRI scan.

We’d also like to invite the parents to join for a one time session at some point during the course of the study.

What is the time commitment for the study?
Each study visit will take approximately 3 hours.

The first portion of each visit will consist of cognitive tests and the latter will be the MRI scan.

What will I receive for participating?

You will receive monetary reimbursement for your time, the result of your child’s cognitive assessments, three free MRI scans of your child’s brain, a copy of your child’s brain images, as well as other gifts for your child.

Who is this research being conducted by?
Dr. Nadine Gaab, PhD and Dr. P.

Ellen Grant, MD of Boston Children’s Hospital
